The Rev. Doug Donley serves as Pastor of University Baptist Church in Minneapolis.  Before coming to UBC in 2001, he pastored churches in Hartford, CT and San Francisco, CA.  

A graduate of Denison University and Union Theological Seminary, he has held national leadership positions with Soulforce and the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America. In his spare time, he runs marathons and makes maple syrup in his Minnesota back yard.  He holds the dubious distinction of being denied ordination twice for refusing to say that homosexuality is a sin.

I know, I know. You hear the word Baptist and you think of exclusionary televangelists or some tiny church in Kansas with colorful signs. I am constantly telling people I’m not THAT kind of Baptist. 

I am the kind of Baptist who loves freedom, even the freedom of our Baptist forbearers. 

I also believe that granting the freedom to marry is a very Baptist thing to do.
